Who we are

As former senior executives from various industries and located around the globe, we know what it takes to deliver results within businesses and adopt an investment model which spans far beyond injections of capital. With years of operational expertise at global industry heavyweights and more than 30 years in private equity, we have a strong track record of leading transformations of large global industrial portfolios and the ability to scale and grow new technology portfolios.

Leveraging this experience, we reduce risk with hands-on involvement in the day-to-day operations and strategic conversations of our investees.
